TOPIC: Great work!

Great work! 5 years 6 months ago #113

Hi,

I've just seen your interview with FliteTest and thought i'd stop in to show some appreciation for the work you are doing.

I'm not exactly a long time RC pilot but i have often wondered why RC kit never used proper data protocols for communication when RF links can offer plenty of bandwidth to do so. being then able to incorperate the FPV into the single channel makes it that much better and simpler for everyone.

I'm curious of a few things, i'm sure they are explained elsewhere but what data protocol is being used? is it as simple as using tcp/ip?

Really hoping we will see your idea/product come to market, it would be fantastic to see.

Regards,
Ryan

Thank you for the positive feedback.

The Protocol used is a custom code i wrote which works together with the ZigBit Mesh features and capabilities.

I just posted a more detailed description about OSRC on the OSRC YouTube Channel. Check that out. Should explain lots more.

Thanks for the reply.

I will check out the video when i'm not at work :D

Just curious, and this may be something explained in the video also, but what is the data throughput like with the protocol you are using? and how much bandwidth is used for a single aircraft?

I'm curious to if there would be a problem with a large number transceivers operating at the same time, could you effectivly run out of bandwidth?

It takes almost no bandwidth to communicate through one craft. However i cannot imagine anyone being able to control more than 3 - 5 crafts from the same control :) Bandwidth of your craft is not affected by the communication of others in the area with their own models unless you connect as a friend to their system.

I see.

I thought the mesh networking idea (which i could be wrong about, but i thought the system used?) would be for devices to effectivly act as repeaters for others, and as such, could become overloaded...

If it's a simple peer to peer network, how are you choosing channels and avoiding interference from other devices on 2.4ghz (or other freq's you use?) ?

It isn't a simple peer to peer. It wouldn't be able to do what OSRC needs if it was. I suggest reading up on the ZigBit Mesh documentation. There is plenty of info there.
